This summer, Tate Modern will explore the art of the Weimar Republic (1919-33) in a year-long, free display, drawing upon the rich holdings of The George Economou Collection. This presentation of around seventy paintings and works on paper will address the complex paradoxes of the Weimar era, in which liberalisation and anti-militarism flourished in tandem with political and economic uncertainty. These loans offer a rare opportunity to view a range of artworks not ordinarily on public display – some of which have never been seen in the United Kingdom before – and to see a selection of key Tate works returned to the context in which they were originally created and exhibited nearly one hundred years ago.

The George Economou Collection is pleased to announce Jeff Wall’s first solo exhibition in Greece. Over the course of a nearly fifty-year career, the Canadian artist has revolutionized the conceptual and visual underpinnings of photography and pushed the medium into the centre of fine art practice. Since first presenting a photograph as a transparency in a lightbox in 1978, Wall has meticulously composed images that reflect and actualise specific social and historical narratives through a critical synthesis of pictorial strategies from both popular culture and classical painting.
